On Sunday, a small plane crashed into a house in Plainville, Massachusetts, killing all three on board and leaving the residence “fully engulfed” in flames, CBS News reports.
According to The Boston Globe, neighbors say a family of four lived in the house, all of whom escaped uninjured.
“A miracle that the four occupants of the home managed to get out unscathed,” Massachusetts State Fire Marshal Stephen Coan told WCVB.
FAA officials say the crash occurred at around 5:15 p.m., but area residents report “hearing and seeing something amiss” before the impact. From The Sun Chronicle:
Mike Brown, of 1 Bridle Path, said he was outside barbecuing when he heard the plane and said when he looked up, he saw the plane begin to bank. He said the engine of the plane did not sound normal and that it sounded like it was sputtering. He then heard a crash and saw smoke.
The New York Daily News reports that the National Transportation Safety Board has been dispatched to the scene and is expected to arrive Monday.
